Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said he learned great business principles as a teenager working and serving people at his uncle’s drugstore in Tallulah.

“I could not have had a better experience growing up in Tallulah,” he said speaking fondly of his upbringing.

Caldwell spoke Tuesday afternoon during the North Shreveport Business Association’s luncheon meeting at the Northwest Louisiana Technical College in Shreveport. The group meets monthly.

Caldwell discussed the many facets of the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office and thanked local district attorneys Schuyler Marvin and Charles Scott and state representative Barbara Norton, all of whom attended the meeting, for their commitment to public service.

“Take what you have and serve other people,” he said.

Caldwell told members of the North Shreveport Business Association that his office is always ready to meet with groups, discuss issues and solve problems.

Coming soon, the attorney's general office seeks to provide a mechanism by which to take online payments for collections.
